Last year Fox performed in the NAMM 2103 “Living Legends” con-cert series with John Payne (Asia), Alan White (Yes), Robin McAuley (McAuley Schenker Group- Survivor), Frankie Banali ( Quiet Riot), Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden) and many more.
He tells us that he brought his own keyboard for this prestigious event because “you have to have your own sounds! With me it’s all about the sounds! I don’t know how keyboard players are expected to walk in and just play any keyboard available. You would almost never ask a guitar player to do that and rarely even a drummer! I hate scenarios where back line keys are the only option and for years I’ve been forced into scenarios where I spend hours before sound check and AFTER sound check programming whatever key-boards are available to tweak up the patches, fatten the sounds and to adjust the effects and envelopes. That’s a lot of work! I’ve gotten smarter and so these days I prefer to request a Yamaha Motif, which most back line companies have and I use external drives and flash drives to download my preferred sounds.
